History of IB at Littleton
In 1997, Littleton High School applied to become an International Baccalaureate Diploma Program school. After approval, the first class of 14 students graduated in 1999 and had a 100 percent passing rate: all students earned their IB diploma.
Since then, the program has flourished. In May 2013, 44 seniors sat for their IB diplomas. Our recent graduates attend universities as diverse as Yale, Stanford, Brown, Cornell, American, Georgetown, Duke, Notre Dame, Pomona, Northwestern, Wash U-St. Louis, Cal Poly, Tufts, Marquette, Creighton, Gonzaga, Lehigh, Rensselaer Polytechnic, Southern Methodist University, Baylor, Williams College, University of Denver, Colorado College, University of Colorado and Colorado State, among many others.
Every year, our graduates gain entrance to the most competitive colleges and universities in the nation.
Littleton's IB diploma rate is 92 percent; the worldwide diploma rate is about 80 percent.
More than a third of Littleton High School's teachers have attended intensive IB training that covers curriculum and assessments.
Through the years, our curriculum offerings have grown along with the program. For World Langauges, we offer French and Spanish; for Science we offer Biology HL and Chemistry SL; for mathematics, we offer Math HL and two courses of Math SL; for the Arts we offer HL and SL Theater, Visual Arts (2D and 3D), Music, as well as Psychology, Philosophy and Design Technology as Sixth Subjects. All students take the HL Language A1 (Literature) course and HL History. Students take six courses over the course of their junior and senior years, and complete the Extended Essay, Theory of Knowledge course, and 150 hours of Creativity, Action, and Service.
